Golfers enjoyed a beautiful morning on the course for the 21st Annual Lutheran Family Services Golf Classic, held at Hiwan Golf Club in Evergreen on Monday, August, 11th, 2014. Over 120 golfers gathered early in the morning for registration and a quick breakfast before the 7:30am shotgun start. The perfect weather and breathtaking course set the scene for a round of golf that was enjoyed by all. The event, which is one of the main fundraisers for the organization, was a huge success for the participants, volunteers, and board members.

The round of golf was followed by a catered lunch, prize drawings, golfing awards and a short program by LFS staff and volunteers. Prizes were awarded to the lowest scoring teams, the mens and women’s longest drive, closest to the pin and putting contest, as well as a trophy award for the annual Church Cup award. Leadership team members also addressed the audience and described the work of LFS and the importance of contributing to the organization. Vice President of Resource Development, Jane Pope Meehan, welcomed the audience and introduced Becky Miller Updike, VP of Child and Family Services who explained the many programs LFS offers the community. Events Manager, Danette Goldhammer, thanked the attendees for their participation.
